ReoccuringTonight, Part II of a Multi Part Series on the Rehabilitaion Hospital of Indiana, of this nations top 3 facilitations of its kind. I mean, they fixed me, didn't they?
Tonight, we stay in the Research Department, walk outside Dr 'Dawn's' door and skip, (ok, hobble) down to Dr. Jim Malek's office. Wait, doors closed, so he must be off saving the world. But lets see who's door is open beside his (as usual), its the busy Elena Gillespie! Let's bug her, she's used to me. Elena is a Research Manager for the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana, specializing in brain injury research and has been in research for over 20 years. She is also the manager of the InterFACE Center, (Interaction and Functional Assessment of Communication and Emotion) we discussed last week. InterFACE is a premier center nationally, to assess emotional dysregulation due to brain injury. RIGHT HERE IN INDIANA! Uh, IU does more than play basketball. But, RHI's main research strategy is to focus on emotional changes after brain injury and how to teach patients how to successfully adjust to these changes. Or, LIFE AS IT WILL BE - TBI-style.
Elena's own interest is in the use of meditative techniques to help teach patients how to remain calm and be happier in their daily lives. I agree, but, well, Elena - what about me? I'm always happy...
FLASH: This just in via Phone - Eric, who moved following my accident, is stopping by the Milton Studio's on his way down south to the country of Kentucky this afternoon. Friends since elementary school, and tavern's as well. So, the wreck, Eric don't like to talk "about it",much, thus the move. But DUDE, I am alive, and you & Doug are the beginning of the reason! (I'll turn my recorder on, he won't know...)

"And Away We Go!" RHI, the 3rd rated Recovery Hospital in the Nation has welcomed me back, but in a different capacity. Let's take a tour, one show at a time over the next couple of months. Let's drop by here first, of course I have a ramblin' path. Ever listen to me? Yet, Recovery at its finest, but TBI Research is it's common body - thus Indiana University Interaction and Functional Assessment of Communication and Emotion (InterFACE) will soon be a Recovery tool of its own kind. In the first of a series on TMDS, we have the wonderful Dr. Dawn Neumann to join us. "It's my baby" she offered. I tried not to disturb the child. She is an Assistant Research Professor at the Indiana University School of Medicine in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Clinical Research Faculty at the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana. She is also the Director of the Indiana University Interaction and Functional Assessment of Communication and Emotion (InterFACE) Center at the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana. She has her MA in Psychology from Rutgers, NJ and a PhD in Rehabilitation Science from the University at Buffalo, SUNY. Another plus is she doesn't make me be too serious, but I will (in case Dr. Backhouse is listening) ;^)
Take a 'virtual tour of the Rehabilitaion Hospital of Indiana by link:
Call In: Explain your concerns of Recovery and everyday life.
HIPPA laws. The good, the bad, the nosey. After all, medical professionals involved in your health can read the files - and they go home, talk with their spouse, their friends about their work. Its normal. However HIPPA's intent is to protect privacy. Yet, my intent is to share medical and heath issuses intow with a Traumatic Brain Injury. Uh, got's me some experience and education in the TBI field. Enough for paid work? No. Enough to teach? Occasionally, yes.
Enough to understand that to share the issue, you have to be on stage, removing all privacy in order to communicate understandably with BI folk. They and 'what ever the issue of the moment is' can be enlightened with 'knowing trustfully' the messenger understands, cares, wants for better than today. That's me. Tri-host Sam Way feels the same, but he'll talk about toys, er, games. Melissa Meeps? Dunno, have learned NOT to try to understand what women are thinking; just flow.
Of this mental mess if not health shattering past two-months I've led (62 Days, but WHO's counting!), we've made it (so far). Is there ligtht at the end of the tunnel? Dunno, wasn't envolved with the constrution of the tunnel. But, Doctor Samantha Backhaus has been HEAVILY involved with the reconstruction of Matt Duffin. So be nosey! Compare. This Rosebud Trooper from The Village me up with Doc "B" on Thursday. My third appointment is the past month. Lot's going on. Lot's. As a Neuropsycologist locally in Indianapolis, creator of BICS, PEER Mentoring (her style), Couples Care and more, Dr. Sammie's work is very Internationallly known. But we're keeping her. Trust me - ya got to go thru Milton first to steal her away from her Hoosier horde of Survivors.
I'm here but back, kinda sorta. Never went anywhere, my bed (comfortable to the max) has been at Rosebud Village, inside with the mentally disabled and aged troops for 40 Days as of now. The Milton Home Port has taken a beating, physically and mentally. Thanks for all the condolences and well hopes from my family of TBI Survivors and freinds, it meant much.
Still does. So much going on, went on, and may yet again go on, has been frustrating to say the least. Dad always told me to do the best, with the tools I got. Occasionally, you'll find your daily tools need sharpened and repaired. Also time to rest the body and soul, if constant PT can be considered resting! Behind the lines with the troops. Never to be forgotten as life is very simple in Nursing and Rehab Facilities, yet very, uh, very well, simply routinely simple. Nice folks all, but I AM NOT READY FOR THIS! Time to escape, soon anyway, permitantly. (Though I do have an a-like Hogan's Hero's system in place).
Dr. Sammie called me on Saturday, just a personal yet neurological conversation about life as is. Calmed my soul, as the good doctor can do as a friend. On the Professional side, basically told me to get my ass in RHI NRC and see her next week! Worried about depression, lost focus and so much stimuli the coping mind can't control - my diagnosis. At least that's what I'll share. Let's share just that tonight, as Sam Way and Meep'ster WILL JOIN ME as we start the New Year of Sunday's off with...thoughts of hope, drive, simplicity and healing.
We'll make it. Devistated, even though expected, dad's death was unexpected. The sun arises somewhere today (not Indiana), offering glimers of hope. Unreasonable Belief became a traumatized family's faith - & it worked.
Tune in tonight as we get LIVE!
Km K vs Rhi-Rhi... nudity for fame. The slap heard around the world... Whoopi's response... and more!
Let's Get Live!
Your hosts: Diamond Ryan & Betty Lewis
Stress Management. That's a thought. Uh, so is owning the private, secluded (but replenished) island the S,S Minnow crashed on, now that Gilligan and crew are done with it. With a better hut, of course. But Stress is so hard to manage. The frustration from stress mounts into an explosion at times, from yelling to screaming to spinning around (I get so dizzy anymore). Lost focus, destruction of plans and its simply not a good 'copinng skill' to have. This is, its called "The 5 R's of Stress Management" by the originator, Brain Injury Coping Skills at RHI Neuro Center, or the Doc Lisa School of TBI & Family Center. Call, join us and share ideas and thoughts or TBI Stress Recognition, Relaxation, Reassuring, Relating and Recovery Do's and Don't. (424) 243-9540. Uh, sometimes an Activating Event through your Beliefs may see your Consequences requiring and solid Defense Attorney, which can be you, once learned to defend againnst your own alarming thoughts.
Race4Time (Race4Time.org) is next Saturday, all in one day now. Whoa, that's a bunch of racing, car showing, draging and 'funning'. Dr. Kevin Butterfield should call in, if done racing in Michigan today, however the lovely Susan Hancock will join us for what updated inforrmation needed. Susan, as I've talked, may be the MOST concenernd if not interested 'civilian' in the brain injury world I've met. But she's race track fast, call, give her information. And surely, Susan is tired of talking to me this week...

We're 1 - 0, as Ernie Francis Jr. WON this weeks TransAm event at Road America! TBI Awareness ROCKS, and Junior is our leader! John Mills a close second. Kevin and I are in the 'hunt' and Jean, smoothly running. Mid-Ohio next, look for TBI Survivors, TMDS and IBIA logo's on the #9 (sometimes #98) cars. Thanks to the Francis family, for the understanding and effort.
And now, 'Dr Jim'
James F. Malec, Ph.D., is Professor and Research Director of Rehabilitation, Indiana University School of Medicine and the Rehabilitation Hospital of Indiana. A Professor Emeritus of Psychology at the Mayo Clinic: Board Certified in Clinical Neuropsychology and in Rehabilitation Psychology through the American Board of Professional Psychology. Active in both lay and professional groups involved with the concerns of people with BI', including the Brain Injury Association, the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine, and the International Neuropsychological Society. He has received a number of professional recognitions, including the Lowman Award from the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine for interdisciplinary contributions to rehabilitation, the Research Award of the North American Brain Injury Society, the Career Service Award from the Brain Injury Association of Minnesota, and the prestigious Robert L. Moody Prize for Distinguished Initiatives in Brain Injury Research and Rehabilitation. He has over 125 peer-reviewed publications as well as other professional publications and continues to conduct research in brain injury rehabilitation and other areas of neuropsychology and behavioral medicine.
TMDS, BIRN, TBI Survivors Network, Race4Time, The Brain Injury Association of America, The Brain Injury Association of Indiana, Breathless Performance Racing, John Mills Racing, 'Over The Wall' host Jean Kinser Dana, Dr. Kevin Butterfield, Ernie Francis, "the remarkable" Ernie Ty Francis Jr (Trans Am Champ now, and future NASCAR Champion - I called it) have united to 'form' an auto racing 'team' to promote Brain Injury Awareness (I'll slide Recovery in, eventually...).
TOO COOL, and so needed. The intent is to provide information, discuss TBI with fellow Survivors who literally "banged their head against a wall", bring our everyday Brain Injury Family to the race tracks, meet the drivers and be guests, promote 'Guest Passes' to events for donors, and, well, much much MUCH more. BI Awareness where it needs to be - Racing, of the most popular sports world wide. The NFL can avoid the serious condition with a marketing 'ploy' all they want, but Racin' is the true 'game' across International Date Lines.
Join me tonight, and of course Sam Way, as we sit down with the Francis's and discuss racing, BI's and the future of Awareness. Doc and Jean are expected to join in, and share a lot of good news. Have I mentioned South Africa? Gina Gee is literally prancing around the Cape, awaiting a Skype call in tonight. Me too. She's an Angel of Hope, Mercy and Life. Not as is, but as will be. Uh, my staff of "one" currently has been a bit over worked this week. It's Water Ski time for RHI Sports this week approaching, as is time with Dr. Dawn Neumann and the new IU Interface Program of Imagining Research. Plus, its Father's Day, and Pop and I always go to a baseball game if possible.
So, take me out to the ballgame, and bring me back in time for Racin' tonight.
Ever been to Africa? Or, watched classic movie "The African Queen"? How about ''Out of Africa"? This week, I did all three at once, because I met Gina Gee, a beautiful woman with a TBI from South Africa who was a professional horse trainer/rider until a 'wild', or, 'terrorist' horse (as Gina referred) toppled on her head one afternoon 4 years ago. A darling, extremely understandable BI Survivor she is, and you will see why. She needs a few words from other Survivors, as unfortunately, she has , none. Except us for now. Listen, hear, burl up, probably saddle up too! Its quite a ride. She stayed up very late for this show, let's not disappoint her or OUR South African 'family' members with words of encouragment and assistance. Seems, they have none. An absolute Angel with wings, travel with me.
Dr. Kevin Butterfield often travels with me, and jumped off the plane as well. NeuroFeedBack is a knowledgeable request, and yes, it came "Out of Africa". Of course, we will Race4Time!!!! Trauma Sports Director Dr. Butt said we are.
Mr. Jake Patrick, Sports Director of RHI Sports, will stop by early to give up dates on next weeks Sports Gala - it ROCKS so much. Yep, Tammy and I will be there. Speaking of Tammy D'ercole, my "current" Co-Host, special friend and fellow Traumatic Life Survivor joins us all night long. Yes, all night - my style! Working on perhaps her own offering on BrainInjuryRadio shows, Tammy brings so much to the table. She will bring her thoughts, ideas and I'm hoping some she brings is fresh food...
If our darling Belinda checks in, we will be around the world in 180 Minutes!
